This begins in the tower of the library in the Plane of Knowledge.

You say, 'Hail, Aid Fimli'

Aid Fimli says 'Greetings Doremi! I wish I had time to chatter but my duties to the list and the Grand Librarian keep me extremely busy.'

You say, 'What duties?'

Aid Fimli says 'I am the aid for the Grand Librarian and he has me cataloging tomes on the master list. I spend so much time working on the list I haven't had time to go collect these items from the planes my uncle in Ak'Anon keeps pestering me over. He wants to upgrade his scrapyard back in Ak'Anon, and says only these items will do. Would you be willing to do me a favor?'

You say, 'I would be willing to do you a favor.'

Aid Fimli says 'Wonderful! If you would gather the following; a bundle of superconductive wires, silicorrosive grease, a gold tipped boar horn and a shard of pure energy, then take them to my uncle Sanfyrd in Ak'Anon. I would really appreciate being able to get back to my work uninterrupted.'

The first two drop from yard trash in the Plane of Innovation. Gold tipped boar horns drop in Drunder, Fortress of Zek (aka Plane of Tactics) off various boars. Shards of pure energy drop off lightning giants in the Bastion of Thunder.

In exchange for these items, Sanfyrd gives you a note to bring back to Aid Fimli.

Aid Fimli says 'Great! I see you got the items to uncle; perhaps he will stop badgering me now and let me be in my work. Hmmmmm, Uncle mentions in his letter that he worked out a way for a gnome to make a giant set of crab crackers. He states it is useless in Norrath but I may be able to make some use of it out here. I guess it wouldn't hurt to share it with you and file it away in the library. To create the cracker combine two metal rods, firewater and a knuckle joint in a toolbox. Interesting indeed, anyways here is your reward; I hope you can put it to good use.'

Just did the quest July 12th, 2019 on Agnarr TLP server.
Thought I would post a few things related to faction.
As a iksar necromancer (Cazic) I had to go out and murder all the minotaurs in Meldrath's hood and pop a gnome illusion which put me at dubious and enabled turn in to Sanfyrd. Then I went to Aid Fimli. Despite conning indiff he did not respond to my hails or prompts as I read the dialogue. Offering to help he tells you to leave him alone. So I used the wood elf crown of deceit and then text worked proper. So there it is. You need illusions to do this quest if you're from the master race of iksar.

Just wanted to put that out there for all my Iggas in the struggle
This new quest does not work anymore either.

At least not for me, on the Rathe server.

I you hail Aid Fimli now his first answer to your Hail is the same, but when you ask about his duties, he tells you that he is working on a list but is very busy now. No new keywords.

So he does not mention any [favors] anymore. If you ask him anyhow (I wish to do you a favor) he will actually shoe you off with the words: " The only favor you can do for me is to leave me alone! Can't you see I am busy?"

This makes it clear to me that this quest has been obsoleted.

I had an old un-attuned Cloak of Greater Pernicity lying around and tried to give it to Aid Fimli, to see if this hand-in quest still works (see the thread linked in the post below mine) however he then gives the cloak back with the words: "you need to hand in all the items at the same time" or something similar. Very odd, but apparently broken. I have not tried to gather the 4 ingredients, give them to Sanfyrd in Akanon and see if I get note, but I may.

All very confusing. I also notice that Cloaks of Greater Pernicity, if they come available in the Bazaar (seldomly from old Inventories) sell for big money. I sold mine within the hour for 10k. This seems to imply that you can still get a Cloak of Lesser Pernicity for this cloak, since that seems to be a twink item that actually has good value. Unlike the Cloak of Greater Pernicity which is a piece of crap in the days of SoF, considering its reccomended level of 60 and the fact that it is attunable.

So is there some broken way to still exchange this Greater Cloak for the Lesser Cloak? Typical thing was that quickly after I sold my Greater Cloak, a Lesser Cloak became for sale in the Bazaar. Had not seen that one in a year. Price: 45k...... :)


EDIT: I just tried the same with another toon that had an unattuned cloak and she got both the option to " do a favor" and do the hand-in quest!
The only thing I can think of is this: The Troll Beastlord with which I tried the first hand in did not get the new quest nor could do the hand in. I think this is because my Beastlord has done the cloak quest before and has simply sold his old Cloak (back when the Lesser cloak was still the Greater) way back before all this was changed. So now he does not get a second chance for the quest. However I do not understand why he could not hand in *another* Greater Cloak then....

They didn't nerf it. The cloak of lesser pernicity is exactly the same as the OLD cloak of greater pernicity.

The cloak of greater pernicity had its stats increased, when it was made the reward for some previously broken elemental level quest. The dev who did that, didn't realize the cloak was also the reward for this quest. Once he did, the cloak of lesser pernicity was created ,and tied to this quest.

It is EXACTLY the same as the original cloak of greater pernicity. Therefore, no nerf.

wrong! take a look at the stats. the lesser cloak has 70 hp/mana less than the greater cloak did. Also if ya know something about where to get the greater cloak spill it! There is no evidence of even a similar cloak still in game.

The cloak of the wise is a temporary rewards for this quest. It is posted on the EQLive site, that the new reward will be a Cloak of Lesser Pernicity, and will have the old stats from the Cloak of Greater Pernicity, before they upped the mana/HP.

Probably will go live next patch.
Yah, #$%^ing cloak of the wise

Handed the note to Aid Fimli at 10:25 AM EST and got the #$%^&ing cloak of the wise. Since we can't use /attack in PoK, I am leading a raid on Uncle Sanfyrd this Friday *8-P

I can confirm that the reward for this is now the Cloak of the Wise, and I was pretty upset about making the discovery. I reported the change in petition and was given the note from the gnome in Ak Anon, but I am loathe to turn it in to see if they haven't fixed the problem yet. Please report if you've received the correct cloak since Nov 1st. Thanks!
Reward changed. (Or a bug)

As of 10/28/05, this quest now rewards "Cloak of the Wise", not the "Cloak of Greater Pernicity"

No aquagoblins work for faction still just stand in middel of cmap and they will agro u and pet will kill. after 2 nights i got from kos to amiable with gemchoppers storm guard and emerald warriors =D

I just bought an illusion gnome potion...
I am dark elf SK with god of innoruuk and when i used potion i was dubious to everyone so i walked right through the front door and turned in items. Works great.
RE: faction
# Jan 30 2005 at 12:16 PM Rating: Default
The value of the items were nerfed because of childish bickering over camp rights. Now I see the same bickering happening to the other Goblin camps in the zone. So many people have no respect for others,and they ruin game for others.

Well I guess that's to be expected when good money is easily accessed by low-levels. I prefer to buy/sell in Bazaar. I make over 1kp within half hour after joining any established server :-)
But Gem-choppers faction goes up faster hunting the Grikbars near Ak-Anon. And they can be killed more easily than the aqua goblins.
# Dec 14 2004 at 2:11 AM Rating: Decent
Is there any way what so ever to get faction back with gemchoppers i hear that they nerfed the aqua goblins. just wondering if anyone knew anything about raising faction with them again. thx :)

I have all the items to turn into Sanfryd but Fimli won't give me the quest. I have tried numerous times but he just tells me to leave him alone.

I'm an Iksar and I'm thinking my faction is probably not high enough but I need to know what faction Fimli is on so I can raise it.

Is it just me or is the quest broken?

Cazik Worshiping Iksar? gnomes love lizards right?
# Mar 21 2004 at 9:05 AM Rating: Decent
OK, I just got this on my Cazic worshiping iksar bst... I killed minos till I got amiable and he still wouldn't take the items... so I finaly got a gnome illusion postion that took me up to ally but I think more importantly it made me NOT an iksar... no problem then. So you need good faction (obviosly or he won't talk to you) and you need to be not an iksar hehe possibly not an evil race, but a gnome illusion and some killing and anyone can do it.
NOTE: even though fimli in PoK wouldn't fully give me the quest, would start talking but then refuse to say more, I did NOT need gnome to do the turn in with him, So 1 gnome potions, the 4 quest pieces and possibly some mino killing if you're really evil and anyone can get this.

Illusions for Dark Races
# Jan 06 2004 at 8:27 PM Rating: Decent
31 posts we go. This is the hard and fast truth about the turn-in in Ak'anon if you are KOS. I turned in two sets today, (grease, horn, wires, and shard). First toon was a 65 DE/SK/Inny worshiper. Second was a 63 Trl/Shm/CT worshiper. Had a chanter buddy cast Gnome Illusion on both. The Sk was Dubious, and Shm was Indifferent. Both turn in's were successfull. I am going to assume that Gnome Illusion Potions would be just as successfull. If on Xev PST to Sallar or Shaame if you have a question.

Illusions Hide your race, unfortunately they do not hide your deity. Luckily i'm a Pally of Tunare and killed a few +faction hits. Nice cloak for any melee class, specially Bard and Pally with the 25Cha.

I might have made a misstake when I tried to do this with potions ( 3-dose essence of gnome ), but they still conned KoS to me. Sanfyrd attacked me before I even got close...

Do go ahead and try, but remember that those potions are expensive if you do not make them yourself...
RE: Illusions for Dark Races
# Jan 29 2004 at 12:00 PM Rating: Decent
From my understanding Illusions only protect you for WHAT you are and not what you have done. If you have done things to lower your faction there then Illusions will not work.

I just managed to finish this. Nice!

My problem was that the gnome in Ak'Anon hated my guts. I tried invis, I tried to get a bard. But I don't know any so I ended up doing this:

To the north-east there is a lair of minotaurs and a gnome renegade necro. I went there and let my pet kill everything that moved. This gives you faction with the king of Ak'Anon and the Gem-cutters, both of which Sandefyrd belonges to.
As most will be lvl 50+ nothing in here will give you problems, exept for the lousy pathing which causes your pet to get lost all the time. So keep an eye on it and mem Summon Companion.
I killed the necromancer three times and the minotaur king twice plus a small legion of lesser minotaurs. This brought me from " threatiningly" to doubious with both the guards and Sandefyrd.

He made no objections as I did the hand-ins, and promptly gave me the letter.

I am a 52 erudite necro, and I did not use illutions or charms, just good old-fashioned slaughter. It worked for me...

Btw. the hand-in to Sandefyrd gave me 2% AA xp and the final hand-in got me 1% AA xp.

Hope someone out there is able to use this info... Good luck!

The minotaur camp is to the north-east in Steamfont, of course...

Just completed this quest with a 55 Human Bard worshipping The Tribunal.

I was apprehensive to everyone in Ak`Anon. Didn't have any problems.

Good luck!
